Reef fish survey data from Fagatele Bay, American Samoa during November of 2007 (NODC Accession 0068717)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Fish surveys were conducted in November 2007 using visual census techniques at Fagatele Bay under the guidance of Dr. Alison Green, the Nature Conservancy. This data set was collected at Transect 2, Fagatele Bay, in collaboration with surveys of NODC Accession 0066319, which is composed of coral and benthic surveys by Dr. Douglas Fenner and Dr. Charles Birkeland. Set 0066319 includes other locations on Tutuila, though this fish set is only from Fagatele Bay, and due to conditions, was restricted to Transect 2, at depths of 3, 6, 9, 12, and 18m.

Purpose The purpose of the ongoing monitoring of coral reef communities is todocument the recovery, or further decline, of coral and fish communities inFagatele Bay, and elsewhere around Tutuila, and to determine if reefcommunities have changed substantially since the combined effects of A. plancioutbreaks and hurricanes that devastated American Samoa reefs in the past 30years.
